Here's a sneak peak of my project for today:
Why of course I'm going to show you the project!!! LOL!!! Just wanted to play with you a bit!
Over time I've rescued many boxes with no idea of what I'd be doing with them, because I so much enjoy creating my own from scratch. However, the other day I decided to pull one of these boxes out to alter. What also came out were my handmade molds, and some polymer clay to make the cherubs and the frame that would adorn my box; and also the embellishments I'd be using. Here's a picture of how my altered box turned out:
This is the top of the box and the wording in the frame reads: "What Shall Be... Shall Be":
Because this box was a deep dark red in color, I had to use 3 coats of gesso paint to cover it and, although you may not be able to see it, I lightly sprinkled it with Diamond Dust before the final coat of paint dried so that it would sparkle. I litely sprayed the flowers with a rose color glimmer mist and dipped them in Diamond Dust. The cherub on the front of the box I highlighted by deepening areas around it with more of an intense color and covered those areas with crackle paint to give it more texture. I hope this is a better close-up picture for you:
I had a great time completing this project and I really like the results -- kind of shabby, kind of chic! Don't you think?!!!
Well, I'll be around in a bit to see what you've been up to! In the meantime, thanks for taking the time to stop by!!!
Hugs and, of course,...
I'll be seeing you1
